"Playful" trees idea for downtown Terre Haute streetscaping.

"Playful" trees idea for downtown Terre Haute streetscaping.
I could have forgiven myself for thinking for a minute that somehow I had ended up someplace in California!, but nope, this is Terre Haute.

Out on the streets with the Terre Haute police!

Out on the streets with the Terre Haute police!
I complained to the officer about men on local road crews blocking sidewalks with their laying-down road construction signs, completely unnecessarily, thereby preventing people in wheelchairs from using the sidewalks.

Pizzazz, charisma of wall of downtown Pittsburgh.

Pizzazz, charisma of wall of downtown Pittsburgh.
It's one of the most-beloved and frequently-photographed walls in all Pittsburgh, but apparently the wall hasn't got an official name? No "Streaks of Something Memorial Wall" nor etc.

The idea of trotting your fruit-flavored ipad to a urine-scented bus stop shelter outside the Best Western in downtown Minneapolis, to linger there with it for awhile.

The idea of trotting your fruit-flavored ipad to a urine-scented bus stop shelter outside the Best Western in downtown Minneapolis, to linger there with it for awhile.

Slosh slosh!, thanks to you folks at B&M for your hard work. I feel that these big sewage delivery trucks ought to be given the same kinds of traffic light preemption devices that ambulances and copcars have, so that they can speed on out of town as quic…

Welcome to animals pizza.

Welcome to animals pizza.
The pizzeria logo idea is: A large-nosed and shirtless pizza chef has a drippy goatee, and he smears the sweaty underside of his big beerbelly onto your pizza before he gives it to you to eat.

I'd rather think about the nicely-painted wall and the coni…

Today the snow is light-brown in colour, plus so are all of the buildings.

Today the snow is light-brown in colour, plus so are all of the buildings.
Part of me is getting hungry for a large bowl of warm oatmeal with brown sugar stirred into it, but the other part of me is getting revolted by the sewer-type odour that that pile of snow is giving off.

"Centre Village," way back there, way up there, was…

Downtown Alamogordo somebody's house.

Downtown Alamogordo somebody's house.
Very near the street! I think it's uninhabited right now but I said a prayer for it. I don't think it looks vulnerable. It hasn't got upstairs bedrooms so maybe it would be good for retirees, or it might be nice to see a young family get put in there.…
